Awake Thou Wintry Earth...

Spring is in the air
little leaf buds are emerging from sleep
iris & daffodil leaves are poking through the soil

I feel like traveling
the gypsy spirit awakes

the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking 
new landscapes 
but in having new eyes
Marcel Proust 

Not all those who wander are lost. 
JRR Tolkien

one's destination is never a place
but a new way of seeing things
Henry Miller

I travel not to go anywhere ... but to go
I travel for the travel's sake
the great affair is to move
Robert Louis Stevenson

the world is a book
and those who do not travel read only a page. 
Saint Augustine

we wander for distraction
but we travel for fulfillment 
Hilaire Belloc


we travel initially to loose ourselves
and we travel next
to find ourselves
Pico Iver

enjoy the day!
